The blog after the last one

I saw this posted by a friend earlier and it is appropriate after my last blog. Firstly I want to say a massive thank you to each and everyone of you that has commented, messaged, texted me today. It has meant a hell of a lot to me.

I also want to say to anyone out there struggling you are not alone, you have people there for you the most important thing is to be honest and admit your struggling and ask for help no matter how hard it is x I have certainly discovered how unalone (its a word honest) I am today. I have fantastic friends and Rich to lean on and the wider SW community. 

I am pleased that I have managed a good day on plan and had my 15 allocated syns. Normally I force myself to stick at 10 but I have decided for the time being to not impose the 10 limit on myself or attempt 777 but instead I will have 15 if I feel I want them. It is easier to deal with one issue at a time and limiting syns to 10 is not going to be good for me right now.

I decided today that I was going to watch my favourite films to make me feel happy which worked really well

I also amused myself by drinking my cranberry juice out of my skull glass very stereotypical hehe

On to the food pictures

Breakfast was magic waffles and fruit and it was really nice and fresh tasting if that makes sense

Lunch was cous cous quiche and salad with a tbsp of onion garlic and chive dip (2.5 syns). I love cous cous quiche but the dip was a bit lame as it didn't really work well. Next time I'll either put the dip on the side or just stick with salad dressing.

Dinner was a gorgeous roast which including cauliflower cheese (2.5 syns for the extra 12.5g of cheese) and roast onion gravy (1.5)

A little while ago I had a mousse (3.5) and mikado (5) taking me to 15 syns for the day

I feel quite proud of myself for today as it was tough but I took one meal at a time. I have also prepped the main part of dinner for tomorrow night so I won't fall into the danger zone of not being prepared.

Night night all and thanks again for all your support xoxo
